In response to Dieter Zimmer's question regarding the "romantic novel,"
I offer this brief definition, with one prototype.

romantic novel- of, having the nature of, characteristic of, characterized
by idealistic, adventurous, impractical, and/or fanciful thoughts, feelings,
attitudes, and actions. eg. Cervantes' *Don Quixote*
